Subject: Tapers response:
1-You didn't have a reserved ticket. Most of Red Rocks (including the area directly behind the board) are general admission. So by definition they are no one's seats including yours as you didn't have a reserved seat.
2- What you had that I didn’t was the Fan club pre-admission. i had no way of securing the seats you were in. I was at the front of the non-fan club line and still it didn't matter. So you see i did plan but in this unique situation had no way getting in early enough to get to these seats.
What I hope you get out of this is appreciation for what we (tapers) do. I don’t think you are someone who values concert recordings or even realize people do them, and they are allowed and that there is typically a place set aside for us to use for this. Either way I’m sorry for the inconvenience but perhaps you need to look at your role in the situation.
Subject: Amazing Concert - Great Recording - Poor Planning
Both you and the Production Manager Head security Lady were totally upside-down on this issue so thanking her for upholding your backwards logic isn’t saying much. If she had really been doing her job then a small area behind the railing would have been reserved for you and roped off before anybody got in there. The people sitting next to us said you caused the same problem the night before with people sitting in that area. So that’s problem number one that had nothing to do with us.
Problem number two was how you came in after we were already sitting there and tried to set up in the middle of our three seats when two of us got up to use the bathroom. Let’s be clear about how it played out, and how you could have avoided the whole problem from the beginning if you had approached us differently. Myself and two friends claimed our seats during early-access entry 20 minutes before you came in during GA entry. Two of us got up to use the bathroom, but our other friend was still sitting there and our seats were clearly marked by our jackets and a blanket laid across the three seats. We got back and you were setting up your equipment right in the middle of our three seats. How you *should* have handled that situation was to have immediately asked us politely where you could squeeze in between the two or three groups of people already sitting in that area behind the railing. Instead, you just continued to set up your stuff right in the middle of our three seats.
Everybody on the bench ended up compromising and scooting down to fit you in between two different groups. Making room for you to squeeze in wasn't the issue. The issue was that you just barged in and set up in the middle of a group of three people without even thinking to ask where you could fit, and then the venue lady upheld your logic of taking our seat even though you came in 20 minutes after us with a GA ticket. I guarantee everybody would have been happy to scoot down from the very beginning if you had handled it correctly from the outset.
In the future:
1.) Get the venue to reserve you a spot if you genuinely have a deal with the band or the sound guy or whoever. That way nobody will claim the spot before you, and then you won’t have to swoop into their spot, get security involved, and compromise for a place to squeeze in.
2.) If you can’t reserve a spot ahead of time, then politely approach the people already sitting there and ask them where you can fit your gear in rather than just waiting for people to go to the bathroom and then setting up right in the middle of three friends who drove 17 hours to see their favorite band together.
Keep doing the cool recordings, but improve the way you approach these situations.
